- Stephanie, of our LCFF team, makes her and her husband awesome low-calorie Margaritas. Here is her recipe:
- Fill two glasses with ice. Add a shot or two of GOOD tequilla (favorite is Maestro Dobel).
- Juice press the following in to the glasses (3 limes, 1 lemon, 2 clementines or oranges)
- For my husband’s drink I add one packet of Emergency – C Electro mix.
- For my drink, I add one packet of True Lime Limeade (100% natural, no preservatives, etc).
- KEY STEP: Mix the drink well. Use a shaker or pass liquid back and forth between a larger cup a few times!
